PCGS Coin Number: 7534
The 1855-D issue ranks as one of the most popular gold dollars. It is very rare; with probably fewer than a hundred coins surviving. Although the average coin is struck fairly well for a branch-mint issue; nearly every example is weak in the central portions of the reverse. The authors have seen coins with the date nearly obscured. Very few coins are found with a full date; these are very rare. Die clashing is evident on nearly every coin found. A few also exist that have been used for jewelry in the past. The 1855-D gold dollar is one of the classic rarities of the series and is very desirable in any grade. The finest known examples are two NGC MS-64 coins from the fabulous Duke's Creek Collection. One of these coins sold in January 2007 for $149;500. This full Date coin should be in a AU58 holder and is one of the top five I have handled in 40 years.
